If the server list does not include the server you are looking for, click Update the List to rescan your network. The list of database servers may not have a particular Microsoft SQL Server even after your network is rescanned (if, for instance, the server blocks broadcasts). If the problem persists, contact your network administrator for assistance. If you use Microsoft SQL Server Express, the (local) option will not work even if the database server is running on the same machine. To use the server, you need to start the SQL Browser service Page 10 of 70

11 first, and then update the list of servers and select your server. Note that Microsoft SQL Server Express should not be used in a production environment due to its limitations. The selected authentication method must be supported by the database server. Note that the default installation of Microsoft SQL Server 2005 has Windows authentication disabled. Windows authentication will work only for a local Microsoft SQL Server or when both application and database servers are members of the same Windows domain. 4. On the Database Configuration page, specify the following options, and then click Next: o Create a new database: Select this option to create a new database, and then enter a database name in the New database name field. o Connect to an existing database: Select this option to select an existing database, and then click on a server name in the server list below. If the schema of the database you have specified is outdated, a message will be displayed next to the list of available servers saying that the database must be updated before you can continue. Then, select the Update database check box below this message. Alternatively, you can leave this check box cleared and select a current version database. 5. On the Company Setup page, specify the appropriate options to add companies for a multicompany application instance of Acumatica ERP. By default, the Configuration wizard creates a single company named Company. More companies can be added if necessary (for example, to serve multiple offices). For each newly created company, you can configure the following fields under the Installed companies label: o Login Company Name: The name that will be assigned to the company on the login screen. (This is used only when there are multiple companies; otherwise, the login screen will not have an option to select a company at logon.) o Insert Data: Specify whether you want to fill the database with demo data or template data. o Visible: Select this check box to have the company displayed on the login screen. o Parent Company ID: Select a parent company ID#: The following view-only fields are also displayed for each company: 1. ID: The numerical identifier for the company. o New: A check box that, if selected, indicates the company is newly created. o Additional Info: The company name in the database. If you select the Advanced Settings check box, the Company Setup screen also shows a company without a name in the list of installed companies. This company is automatically created by the system under ID 1, and is used for internal purposes, such as for storing Page 11 of 70

12 Help files and default settings. With the Advanced Settings check box selected, you can change and even delete an existing company. But since a company you see here can be a live company, you may consider it necessary to create backups before making any changes. If you select the Secure Company on Login Form check box, the application login screen does not show dropdown for company selection. This helps when you don t want users to know about other companies existence unless they have access to those companies. There is also a web.config level option that allows to login to a specific company without showing dropdown for company selection. This option is helpful in Self-Service portal deployments with multiple companies. Follow these steps to configure the login company: 1. Open the web.config file for the Acumatica ERP or Self-Service Portal instance. This file is usually located in %Program Files%\Acumatica ERP\<instance name>, where <instance name> is the name of the Acumatica ERP or Self-Service Portal instance site. 2. In the file, find the providers section, which has the following settings: 3. <add name="pxsqldatabaseprovider"... companyid="".../> 4. Change the following key value: companyid="''x''" where x is the ID of the company you want to users to login. 5. Save the web.config file; this automatically restarts the website. 2. Optional: On the Tables Configuration page, you can specify whether you want the database tables to be shared between different companies, and the click Next. This page is displayed only if you have selected the Advanced Settings check box on the previous page. 3. On the Database Connection page, specify the authentication method used by this application instance of Acumatica ERP to connect to the database, and then click Next.
